Job application process

Back to Working at Chesterfield College

Chesterfield College recognises that its staff are fundamental to its success and we are delighted that you are considering applying for a post with us.

We understand and appreciate the effort our applicants make when applying for a vacancy, so our online application system has been designed to make the process as easy as possible for you.

If you have any questions about how to apply using the online application system please contact us by email

We accept applications in various formats. For all support and teaching roles we would usually anticipate a full detailed application form which would reflect your experience and qualifications, for other roles we may ask you to submit a CV. This will be clearly displayed on the advert. You must ensure that your CV contains enough detailed information to demonstrate that you meet the requirements of the role.


We will not request references until you have been offered a role at the college. Once an offer has been made we will contact your nominated referees.

Medical Questionnaire

All appointments are subject to medical clearance. If you are successful at interview, you will be asked to complete a confidential medical questionnaire. 


As you complete your application please ensure that you meet the essential criteria in relation to the qualifications you hold in line with the person specification. As part of our pre-employment checks we will verify the qualifications that you have claimed as part of your application.
